My Valve Job

I haven't had my motor apart since my late friend Bob McCallum and I did a complete rebuild 33 years ago. Another friend, John Moriarty and I pulled the head and I took it to Markus Glarner to have him do his magic. If you don't know Markus, he does some of the finest work you've ever seen. 

 

While it was apart, I figured I take the opportunity to add a few goodies. I ordered IE HD valve springs, HD rocker arms, rocker locks and a new billet 292' cam. Markus also replaced the valve guides which he  tapered for better air flow. 

 

I'll let the photos tell the rest of the story.

You can still see the crosshatching on the cylinder walls after 33 years!  How many miles since that rebuild?

Thanks, I'll look into that. I still have a couple things to do before I fire her up.

I know, I was amazed when I saw that. I would estimate about 65,000 miles. I wouldn't say those were exactly gentle miles either. ;)
